How to Assess Tardive Dyskinesia Symptom Improvement With Measurement-Based Care.

Source :

​​​​​​ Clinicians now have 2 effective and well-tolerated vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2) inhibitors-valbenazine and deutetrabenazine-for the treatment of patients with tardive dyskinesia (TD), a severe and potentially irreversible side effect associated with dopamine receptor blocking agents. Clinicians should use measurement-based care, eg, the Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale with activation maneuvers, to assess and document TD symptoms and treatment progress.
